Flyod Mayweather is Selling Jewish Hats on His Website

Flyod Mayweather Jr., the undefeated boxing champion - possibly this generation's Muhammad Ali - has been engaged in a different kind of fight recently: a social media feud between former bestie turned frenemy Curtis Jackson a.k.a. 50 Cent.

50 has been "trolling" Mayweather recently, challenging him to read a page of Harry Potter or Dr. Seus' Cat in the Hat after claiming that the boxer can't read, posting fake love letters the boxer wrote to his ex-girlfriend (who's now dating rapper T.I.) and calling out the boxer repeatedly via his Instagram and Twitter pages.

While it's all very immature, it's also been a very entertaining ride for those who have been following along.

But now we've learned that Mayweather might be getting fed up with all those bad vibes, and has focused his time on something more spiritual, and close to his heart: selling Star of David hats at his website.

Labelled "Star Power," the hat features three Star of Davids that circulate a crown.

Over on his website, the item is accompanied by this description: “Star Power is a hat that represents an individual who embraces mind, body, and soul to achieve greatness.”

The hat is available in grey with white stars, or white with blue stars (or as we call, the Israel version), for $60. One size fits all.

If you act now, you may win a chance to win tickets to Mayweather's next fight, against Marcos Maidana on Sept 13th.

Buy your Star Power hats here.
